Looking for something different to put on the Barbeque this summer? Try out one of our latest seafood additions – fresh water pickerel! Most commonly fished in Lake Erie, pickerel are a wild caught species from Ontario. This awesomely unique product is sweet and mild and is great for people who are looking for a fish without that “fishy taste”. Lake Erie is the most shallow of the Great Lakes and the warmer water makes the fish grow exceptionally fast. For this reason there is always a healthy stock of fresh pickerel available and the population is very stable. Pickerel is both Ocean Wise and MSC approved for being a sustainable and responsibly caught fish. Feel good about what you eat when you add pickerel to your next box!
COOKING TIPS: Raw pickerel fillets have a sandy-brown colour and a thin, colourful skin on one side. When cooked, the meat turns firm with off-white colour. Pickerel is incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed a number of ways including baked, pan-fried or deep-fried with a crispy breading. But most exciting is that it is firm enough to put onto the barbeque and enjoy with your other truLOCAL favourites!Start Building My Box
